Heeft het bieden van opvang consequenties voor mijn bijstandsuitkering?

Does providing accommodation have implications for my social assistance benefits?

The principle is that the temporary stay of a guest should not affect the amount of social assistance benefits (bijstandsuitkering). However, there are certain conditions to be met:

  • Inform the municipality and/or the Social Insurance Bank (Sociale Verzekeringsbank) about the temporary stay of a guest from Ukraine
  • The cost-sharing norm is generally not applied. However, if your guest also receives a full social assistance benefit, the municipality may consider applying the cost-sharing norm.Contact your municipality if this situation applies
  • Report to the municipality the arrangements you have made with your guest regarding a contribution to housing costs
